AFAIK, OSOR is somehow related to Cascadoss activities.
Does OSOR collaborate with Cascadoss partners in any way?

I'm also interested to learn about how OSOR relates to OSGeo Foundation 
activities. Does OSOR aim to "duplicate" OSGeo Foundation activities on 
the european soil?

It seems there is potential of synergism between these two entities.
